Hello from Central Illinois

Post by squata » Tue Mar 13, 2018 5:49 am

Hi everyone. My name is Will Petersen and I am from a small town in Illinois located about 50 miles west of our capital of Springfield. I am a novice blade maker, and I really enjoy it. I made my third knife using a pattern of Dan's that I donated to our local 4H.

Right now I am limited by my current grinder which is basically a platen attached to a bench top sander. It uses 2x48 belts, but it runs very slow and doesn't remove material as well as a larger belt grinder. I've been hanging around the homebuilt grinders Facebook page which allowed me to discover this page. Wow! This is an incredible resource. I hope to build my own grinder based on these plans if I can locate a local machine shop to cut the materials. Thank you to Dan and the others here who have provided this information, and thank you for having me here.
